So clearly I lazed around all last week, but I honestly think I needed that time off. It was time for me to well one be lazy. A concept Alex desperately wishes I would practice more often (at least that is how he tells it to me.) The second reason though, was because I was determined to have a great birthday week this year.
Alex really supported me in my decision to do this. Work has been….horrid. I’ll be honest its been horrid. I’ve typed up (and ripped up) a resignation letter. I’ve cried. I’ve just plan gotten angry. And Alex knows its been eating at me so this past week was a time for me to chill.
Miller chill baby! (What I love this beer…yes Jarrett it’s a cheap beer but its oh so good.)
Anyway, so on Tuesday I got to leave a little early which was good because Alex somehow managed to talk my ass into attending this “Ladies Night” BS at Home Depot down by where he works. It was an organization class and I honestly didn’t get a darn thing out of it in terms of ideas mostly because I’ve been researching this on Pinterest a ton lately! Anyway – so I ended up having to insert my foot into my mouth about how silly this was by the end of the night because I won a door prize. I’ve been BEGGING Alex to puh-lease redo our master closet for months now, but those darn systems are EXPENSIVE!! (Well they are….for our income.) By the end of this event I walked out with a $130 kit to redo our closet.
I don’t deny having closed my eyes and going “God please let them call me oh please oh please.” (When they called my name I threw my hands up in the air and shouted YES!!!!!!)
Wednesday was birthday bash galore but I’ll make that its own post.
Thursday I basically sat on my rumpus all day. Seriously…we don’t have t.v. service so I read all dang day. Well I read while my computer processed my redo of my Lightroom catalog of 2k plus photos.
I did get up once to go meet Alex for lunch since its rare for me to visit him. It was a great treat for both of us.
On the way home I continued my “celebrate me” week theme by getting my annual Starbucks. Yum!
Friday I well…I felt guilty for Thursday. So I did laundry and dishes. Then I primed our cabinet drawer fronts (the backs have been primed for a week or two), before getting out and FINALLY painting my desk. Alex is going to help me move the darn thing after this part dries so that I can actually finish it.
Inside and the top are all that is left…thank goodness!!
Other than that it was vacuuming, basic straightening by picking up the misc stuff through the house, and balancing the check book. (Yea I’m back to handling that…boo hiss.)
Saturday and Sunday were the “typical” weekend events of grocery shopping, church, and minor social events. I feel bad that Alex doesn’t get weeks like this, but every time I mention a vacation he holds back.
Not sure if that is the “male must work” mindset he has or what but I do know I am incredibly grateful he let me take a week like this for myself.
